Clive Hamilton writing in crikey.com (20th Nov) suggested the Rudd Government’s proposed Internet censorship legislation had merit. It set a wave of protest responses. The following day, Electronic Frontiers Australia’s Colin Jacobs refuted Hamilton’s claims. His organisation:
… strongly opposes the Government’s push to filter the internet, and our real objections, in chorus with many in the ISP industry, media and general public, have been made plain. All along, sadly, those pushing for the plan have shown a stubborn unwillingness to address informed concerns and see all opponents as champions of sexual deviance. Hamilton’s arguments are a very typical, but unhelpful, example of this.
